Samsung Electronics and ABB partner to develop comprehensive smart building technology

ABB and Samsung Electronics will collaborate to provide jointly developed technologies for energy saving, energy management and intelligent connection of the Internet of Things (IoT) residential and commercial buildings.

Buildings generate nearly 40% of annual global CO2 emissions, and the partnership will create a platform to establish a long-term relationship for the innovation in smart technology, smart control and smart devices.

The collaboration willExtend guest access to home automation technologies and better device managements, while facilitating the change of electrical load. Smart homes use connected appliances and appliances integrated through a centralized system to save money, time and energy.

When connecting the application Samsung SmartThings and home automation solutions ABBFor example, residents will be able to use their personal devices to monitor and manage a full range of home appliances, as well as smoke and gas sensors, energy, security and comfort systems from a single app. . proactive management appliances, such as dishwashers and washing machines, to operate during off-peak hours, for example, ensures network optimization and reduces energy costs.

Mike Mustapha, President of ABB smart buildingssaid it was important to envision a future where customers can benefit from significant carbon and energy savings by improving additional access to fully integrated and holistic smart building technology.

The association with a major leader in technological innovation such as Samsung Electronics supports the vision and offering of ABB to connect entire buildings with open and agnostic solutions and to provide information on total energy consumption, including things like electric vehicle (EV) charging.

Along with home automation solutions, the two companies intend to expand collaboration between heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) products and variable refrigerant flow (VRF) room control system from Samsung Electronics and the Control system ABB HVAC for commercial buildings and multi-unit developments.

Chanwoo Park, director of IoT business at Samsung Electronics, said the simplicity of bringing two vendors together in this way also facilitates smart construction projects for construction companies and property developers.

“Whether retrofitting existing buildings or new sites, with a single source of solutions, they can be sure that the products will integrate and work together seamlessly. It also improves after-sales experience as there is only one platform for the whole system.
